Rania + Carlos | Military Engagement | New Orleans, LA

Photographing a happy, giggly, military couple in the middle of New Orleans, LA was a dream come true. Rania and Carlos were so easy to work with. I don't think we ever stopped laughing. I love seeing high school sweethearts get married, especially when they ask me to capture their wedding day bliss! I met this gorgeous military couple through my best friend Shannon, so right off the bat I knew they would be incredibly fun to photograph. They are self proclaimed "foodies," so New Orleans was the perfect place for engagement photos and chowing down (with a dash of drinking) along the way! If you're ever in New Orleans, check out Mr. B's Bistro. It is famous for its Creole cuisine makes the most delicious barbecue jumbo shrimp you'll ever have!

Bourbon Street was definitely an experience and I'm glad I had these two as my guides. We all love the French Quarter for its gorgeous boutiques, the architecture is stunning, and it brought me right back to walking the streets of Paris, France two years ago. I am overjoyed that these two have become such good friends of mine. Now that Carlos has his wings, it's time to let their love fly!

Rania and Carlos: I love you dearly. You are the most down to earth couple and I've really enjoyed becoming friends with you! I admire that you both are go getters and have such a solid relationship. I can't wait for wedding day fun!
